After its second of three bye weeks this season, California (#25 ESPN/USA Today) returns to action when the Golden Bears travel to Tucson, Ariz., for a 7 p.m. matchup with Arizona on Saturday, Oct. 18. Cal and UA, which visits Stanford Oct. 11 before hosting the Bears, are tied atop the Pac-10 standings with 2-0 records. The teams are also two of the better defensive teams in the country with Arizona ranking second in total D, giving up 226.2 ypg, and Cal 25th at 290..6 ypg. On the other side of the ball, Arizona is first in the Pac-10 in scoring offense (43.6 ppg) with Cal third in the league (39.4 ppg). Cal has captured four of the last five meetings with Arizona - all victories have come by at least 18 points - but the Bears dropped a 24-20 decision to UA the last time the schools played in Tucson in 2006.
